My document has a blank page at the end, Is there an easy way to forcibly delete it? ideally

\deletepage{2}

I have already tried altering the margins, but it screws with friggeri-cv layout

edit:

    Probably better to eliminate whatever's causing it. Would it be possible to provide an MWE showing your set up and then we might be able to help you get rid of it – Au101 Feb 11 '16 at 23:22

    Welcome to TeX.SX! A blank page at the end is not “blank”: it contains something invisible, otherwise TeX would not make it. Some more information is needed. – egreg Feb 11 '16 at 23:31

    From memory, friggeri-cv has some pretty inflexible elements in it. I assume one of them is to blame. (One of the reasons I don't suggest using the class/template.) Post the code if you want help understanding what is going on. And of course pdftk, the swissarmy knite of PDF manipulation, can prune away arbitrary pages. – jon Feb 12 '16 at 3:28

    The example prints two pages, but the second one is not blank – egreg Feb 12 '16 at 21:34

I had a similar problem. The easiest solution was to do it outside of TeX. Integrate the following command into your Makefile/script:

$ pdfseparate -l 1 document.pdf output.pdf

I know this is not a pure TeX solution, but this unanswered question is a bit old and I hope this helps someone.
